Envision in Action!

Envision Chaffee County engages citizens to sustain and improve our quality of life and to create the future the community wants as the county grows. The effort is urgently needed. County population grew 5.6% in just two years from 2015 to 2017 and will continue to expand as Colorado adds an expected 1.5 million new residents by 2030. Declining forest health is also a critical issue, with increasing risk of severe fire and impacts from recreation.

Envision Chaffee County works with the community to deliver the Community Action Plan’s 40 programs and projects that address the county’s most pressing challenges. Download your copy!

Envision Community Action Plan projects were developed over a year of planning in 2017-2018, through the participation of 1,500 citizens, 4 local governments, and 72 non-profit organizations, businesses and agencies. Fifth-generation ranchers, new residents, students, and retirees – our community – is building a future based on common ground. Together, we develop a shared vision for Chaffee County’s future and are working to build that future!


Envision Accomplished!
